Web Access Control (WAC)
Web Access Control (WAC) is a decentralized cross-domain access control system providing a way for Linked Data systems to set authorization conditions on HTTP resources using the Access Control List (ACL) model.
WAC (as used by the Solid Project) is based on Tim Berners-Lee's May 2009 proposal, as originally captured, and subsequently evolved by the community, at Web Access Control Wiki. This spec is a particular subset of the options and extensions described in the wiki, as well as implementation experience.
